How to Install the Mickey and Minnie Mouse AR Emojis on the Galaxy S9/S9 Plus
Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S9 released last week, and one of the features that it comes with is the support for AR Emoji. They let you create emojis that look like you and act like you using the front camera, although the results on the S9 and S9+ have been slightly underwhelming. And now, thanks to Samsung’s partnership with Disney, you can also put your expressions on Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, with more Disney characters to be added throughout the year.
The option to download new emojis for AR Emoji is nestled in the corner of the camera app and might have slipped several users attention. If you missed it, follow the instructions below to download the Mickey and Minnie Mouse AR emojis. Please note that the emojis may not be available in your region yet, in which case you can simply try this out later on. We’re expecting the emojis to be available for everyone at some point in the coming days.
How to install Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse AR Emoji on the Galaxy S9
Step 1: Launch the camera app on your S9 or S9+ and hold the phone in portrait mode (vertically, with the Samsung logo on top). Swipe up or down to switch to the front camera.
Step 2: Now, swipe left in the camera UI until it switches to the AR Emoji mode.
Step 3: Look for the + icon at the bottom right of the screen. Tap that icon and you will see a list of stickers that are available for download.
Step 4: The Mickey Mouse sticker should be first on the list. Tap the Mickey Mouse sticker, which will take you to the Galaxy Apps store, to the Mickey Mouse and Friends AR Emoji listing. If you don’t see it, they might not be available in your region, so we’d recommend that you try again later.
Step 5: Tap the Download button to start downloading and installing the new emojis. Once the installation process is complete, tap the back button on the phone to go back to the camera. If you’re still in the AR Emoji camera mode, you should see the Mickey Mouse icon in the list of available emojis. Tap this icon so you can start creating Mickey and Minnie Mouse emojis.
Now that you have the Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse emojis installed, you can play around with them to create fun animations with your very own facial expressions. I’m still not sold on the concept of emojis, let alone animojis, but it looks like companies are keen to invest resources in making them better, so I guess they must appeal to a whole lot of people.
